The Volkswagen Golf TDI BlueMotion could now boast of being a true three-litre car after using only 2.92 litres of diesel per 100 kilometers on a DEKRA-supervised test run from Nantes, France to Copenhagen, Denmark. Powered by a 110 PS TDI engine, the Golf TDI BlueMotion used just a single 50 litre tank of fuel to travel 1,602 kilometers, or equivalent to 97 mpg.
Simon Thomas, head of Marketing of the Volkswagen Group and the Volkswagen Passenger Cars brand, described the test result as “really impressive result” noting that the trip – dubbed as the “Think Blue. Eco Ride.” -- showed that the combination of fuel-saving BlueMotion efficiency technology and a well-planned proactive driving approach could result to economy figures that are hard to match.

In June this year, rival carmakers Ford and Volkswagen inked a memorandum of agreement for a possible strategic alliance. Months after signing the MoU, automotive industry analysts are now floating the ideas of possible merger or an equity swap between the American and German companies. Nonetheless, Ford is quick enough to quash such ideas even before they get out of hand.
Under the signed MoU, Ford and VW are exploring a number of potential projects in several areas like the development of a range of commercial vehicles together. Likewise, a possible partnership would also work to better serve the evolving needs of customers. The parties have already made it clear back then that the potential alliance wouldn’t involve any equity arrangement.
However, The Detroit Bureau published an analysis that the potential alliance between Ford and VW might go beyond the commercial vehicle market, since doing so could be beneficial for both carmakers. For instance, Ford can benefit from VW’s robust presence not just in Europe, but also in Latin America and China. On the other hand, VW can take advantage of Ford’s strong fortified status in the United States, particular in the pickup and SUV segments.Read the entire article Ford kills rumors over potential merger or equity swap with Volkswagen
German carmaker Volkswagen has just revealed the next generation of the VW Passat family sedan, but there is a twist. The all-new Passat that was just unveiled was created for the massive automotive market in China. Nonetheless, this Passat is an important model as might be able to provide a glimpse of how the next-gen sedan for the United States might look like when it finally arrives.
Nonetheless, it should be noted that while having the same name, the VW Passat bound for China is much different from the existing large sedan models in the United States and in Europe. The recently unveiled China-bound Passat sedan is undeniably influenced by the VW brand’s understated and simple design mantra. In fact, the front end of this China-bound Passat sedan seems to be adopted from the Arteon, especially the shape of its new grille.
The Arteon-like front grille of the China-bound VW Passat is flanked by elegant headlights that extend to the sides. When viewed from the sides, this Passat reveals a sleek profile with some liftback influences. While this Passat does have a sloped roofline, it is a traditional sedan featuring a small trunk opening.Read the entire article Volkswagen unveils next-generation Passat for China
